Heartburn issues: Short answer: avoid spicy ; greasy foods, tomato-foods, mints, alcohol, tobacco, caffeine, chocolate, late night meals before bed. Long answer: distinguish acid versus non-acid causes of reflux, rule out motility problems of the esophagus ; stomach, ; even consider non-gi related problems that can mimick heartburn (has your heart been checked?). Ph testing will assess whether your ppi is working.
